Powered by a single 510 HP diesel, range is an eye-popping 6,000 miles. Cruising speed is 7.5 knots, maximum is 10 knots, and the boat has an auxiliary ketch sailing rig. Important equipment includes three generators, a 1600 watt inverter, complete electronics and safety gear (including two life boats), and a rocket-propelled line-launcher. Accommodations feature six cabins with private heads and hand-made quilts and rugs. The Wanderbird is currently berthed in Gloucester.



WANDERBIRD is a North Sea fishing trawler converted to a very comfortable long range expedition trawler. This stout refitted vessel is the culmination of our over forty years combined experience as professional mariners. We have drawn from our experience of carrying passengers on a traditional rigged sailing ship to create a custom design for your safety and comfort. WANDERBIRD is a combination of several elements: a traditional ketch auxiliary sailing rig, beautiful wood interiors with classic yacht design from the 1940s, a charming and cozy galley, the strength and integrity of a working fishing vessel, a fuel range of 6000 nautical miles, and capabilities for offshore adventure. We invite you to join us aboard this extraordinary vessel to experience the era of tramp steamer voyages! Wanderbird was built as a classic North Sea fishing trawler by the H. de Haas shipyard in Maassluis, Holland. She was launched as beam trawler for a Dutch fishing family, in 1963 and fished until 1990. A beam or side trawl carries fishing nets from the side of the vessel.
